Live From Eriks Winebar - Part 2

Guessing from the previous post, one could think it was a big glass, but it is my Ipad acting up...
Next up, with a grilled steak, is a glass of another new producer for me.

2010 Mica, Buccella
This is the second wine from this producer when it comes to their Cabernet. Mostly Cabernet with some Petit Verdot and Malbec. The nose is deep, upfront and beautiful with notes of ripe black currants, black cherries, bluberries, new expensive leather, freshly grounded coffee, clotted blood (!), saw dust and a touch of asphalt.
The taste is big, powerful and seamsless with sweet, beautiful black currant fruit with some added notes of new leather, cherry jam, asphalt and dried figs. A long, fine, seedy finish. Drinking fine but need some more years in the cellar.
90p (tasted 2012/12)
